Subject: Bell System (BS)
A film totally unlike other Bell Head films. To be an employee of the former Bell System, you had to wear seat belts or it was grounds for dismissal. They really didn't get that point across in this film, probably because the do-good radicals hadn't yet jumped on the bandwagon and pushed for mandatory seat belt laws. A waste of time in watching.

Subject: Good one
It's good to see a 70s safety film without Guardiana, the alien-possessed traffic crossing guard from "Safety: In and Out of Doors" and "Safety: Harm Hides at Home". I liked this one. Not sure why Bell made the film, though, besides the shots of one of their phones ringing.

I liked the 70s film styles. Lots of artsy shots, zooms, and closeups. Moves somewhat slow but not too much.

Subject: Gets The Message Across
A 1970's safety short- made long before "Click it, or ticket." Interesting to see the
styles of that time. The film gets the point across about wearing safety belts. Well written script.

This very 70's seat-belt awareness commercial tries waaay to hard to get the "message" across that seat belts save lives. We go to a party, where the subject of course, veers towards the joys of wearing seat belts (they increase the talk 2 fold after watching some commercials that tell them if you love someone, buckle up). During all of this of course, is footage of a couple comning to the party, and of course, they aint wearing their seat belts! So you can tell where this is going. The acting is pretty good (look for Penny Marshall in a small scene) and has a VERY 70's feel to it. Quite interesting and reccomended.

"Where's Mark and Heidi?"

It's the only question anyone can ask at this swingin' 70s groove-fest, until one party-goer decides to "see what's on the news" and happens upon a series of commercials for safety belts. After gathering around and staring at the TV like chimps before the monolith, suddenly every conversation centers around seatbelt safety and the pros of buckling up. Of course, we follow Mark and Heidi on the way to the party (faces never shown), when suddenly at the party, the phone starts ringing.

Not so much funny as odd. Features Penny Marshall in the commercial sequence. From our good friends at Bell Systems.
